Massachusetts a breeding ground for the worst
Boston Herald, by Howie Carr

Original Article

Posted By:nhchemist, 1/11/2019 9:38:54 PM

Doesn’t it sometimes seem like almost every sanctimonious jerk in politics and the left-wing media has some kind of connection to Massachusetts? The commonwealth has become a magnet for a hugely disproportionate number of America’s most obnoxious know-it-alls — they’re not all natives, but so many of the nation’s most insufferable idiots have spent time here, and they all have one thing in common: They’re smarter, more moral and just generally better than the rest of us(Snip) Massachusetts: the large intestine of America. There’s always something new making its way through the pipeline.

Why do they move to NH and screw up everything here?

True enough Howie, but California is right up there.

Now we´re stuck with the imbecilic potty-mouth Kamala God-Help-Us Harris. But get ready for Gov. Gavin Newsom, who makes Moonbeam Jerry Brown look like Reagan. He´ll be along soon.

Back in the late 60s, my husband had a military medical appointment in Boston dealing with his service disability. The speed limit on the 4-lane going through town was low, but all drivers were going 80. There were steel bars covering house windows, barbed wire around businesses, tall chain link fences around houses, etc. Then there was the Combat Zone. I vowed then to never go back and I never have. They can keep their liberal utopia.

Don´t forget the cocky ex Mayor of N Y City Bloomberg came from Mass. he should be on Howie´s list. He is not a gem either he stole a third term as Mayor when it was by law a two term in NYC against the will of the people. He is a little man with big ideas about the consumption of what you eat and drink. And when this little dictator gave up smoking cigarettes he made every one give it up because he couldn´t stand the temptation,so he made all restaurants and Bars hang a sign "NO SMOKING". Think about this, this little pigmy is thinking of running for President.

The paternal side of my family immigrated to Boston from Prussia around 1800 but my grandfather was the last one to leave - in or around 1920.

I lived in MA for 3 years back in the early 70s and there’s a reason why we called the locals Massholes.

For newly minted presidential hopeful Julian Castro, establishing top tier name recognition was not the only item on the breakfast menu at Wednesday morning´s Politics & Eggs forum at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics. Kicking off the first full day of his first swing through the Granite State since announcing his candidacy in his native San Antonio last Saturday, the Texas Democrat and former Obama administration Housing and Urban Development Secretary gave the opening argument for his candidacy to a packed room on the St. Anselm College campus.

It was promising to be an uncharacteristically warm winter day in Boston. The temperature on Jan. 15, 1919, had soared to 40 degrees from 2 degrees earlier in the week, prompting many downtown workers to head outdoors.

The envelopes, please: At Kevin Spacey’s hearing next week on sexual-assault charges on Nantucket, the Hollywood actor’s lawyer will bellow: “We are outraged that these charges have been brought in this venue – the bailiwick of the Kennedys. Your Honor, if my client’s name were Kevin Kennedy, this prosecution would be a joke.” Future direction of stock markets remains cloudy, but Carrnac can predict absolutely: if market goes up, alt-left media will credit Obama.

Before she blocked me last week on Twitter, I frequently read the posts of Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, as well as tweets from former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg and his Everytown for Gun Safety, which is her organization´s chief financial backer. (Snip) It´s alarming how frequently Watts manipulates data to craft a narrative that America is held hostage to pervasive gun violence and how often she and her organization regurgitate the usual debunked Democrat and DMIC (Democrat Media Industrial Complex) myths, lies, half-truths, and conspiracy theories.

CONCORD – In a day of high drama at the State House, Bill Gardner, the nation’s longest serving Secretary of State, held off a formidable challenge by former Executive Councilor Colin Van Ostern, eking out a four-vote win to another two-year term. Gardner, the underdog in this race for the first time in decades, pulled off a remarkable upset, beating Van Ostern on the second ballot of voting by House and Senate members, 209-205. First elected in 1976, Gardner told the New Hampshire Union Leader he was hoping for one more term, bringing him to the 100th anniversary of the

KYIV, Ukraine—How do you measure America’s greatness? By the size of its economy, or the strength of its military? By the height of its city skylines, or the audacity of the moon landings? Perhaps, by the heroism of the Marines who landed on Iwo Jima, or of the Army soldiers who landed on Omaha Beach? Maybe. But America’s greatness is not always measured like in the movies or a campaign speech. Sometimes, an anonymous act of gratitude is proof enough, even if we, as Americans, don’t always see it that way.

Has President Trump suckered Democrats and the Deep State into a trap that will enable a radical downsizing of the federal bureaucracy? In only 5 more days of the already-“longest government shutdown in history” (25 days and counting, as of today), a heretofore obscure threshold will be reached, enabling permanent layoffs of bureaucrats furloughed 30 days or more. Don’t believe me that federal bureaucrats can be laid off?

Gillette´s new ad, browbeating men through a #MeToo and "toxic masculinity" pitch, supposedly to persuade men to buy their razors, is so revolting it´s possible to think it´s satire. There is also a 30-second version, which doesn´t even seem to be about selling razors: Seriously, did a spy from Schick get into the Procter & Gamble´s advertising agency and concoct an ad very sure to turn potential customers off? Who would want to buy that after such a string of insults? Isn´t ad rule number one to not insult the customer? Well, this one does.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday asked President Donald Trump to reschedule his State of the Union address — or deliver it in writing — as long as the government remains shut down. "Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th," Pelosi wrote in a letter to Trump.

In the past two months, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has fractured three ribs and had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung. She was absent from oral argument last week and will miss this week’s arguments as well. Doctors say they expect her to be back on the bench in February, and until then she will review transcripts from her home and participate in the court’s decision-making remotely. But her return to work has not quieted critics who say that Ginsburg should have retired long ago and that her health issues are the latest evidence that justices should not be

A family dubbed Britain’s "first transgender family" has announced that they are encouraging the gender transition of their five-year-old son, Jayden. According to the family, Jayden, a biological male, likes dresses and hates "everything about being a boy." The little boy´s "step-dad," Greg Rogers, is a 27-year-old biological female who now identifies as a male. The child’s mother is a 21-year-old woman named Jody. Both Jodi and Greg are furious that concerned citizens (referred to as “trolls” by many U.K.-based outlets) have reported them to social services for apparent child abuse.

It’s tough to tell. Does this make the shutdown a bug … or a feature? Nancy Pelosi has asked Donald Trump to put off his State of the Union speech to the joint session of Congress until after the funding issues have been resolved: (Copy of Letter/Tweet) And with that, the new Speaker of the House just made the best case possible for a perpetual shutdown. Kidding! What I meant to say was that Nancy Pelosi has finally sounded a note of wisdom, at least in her reminder that presidents used to just deliver a report in writing to Congress.

For the last 35 years, the snowpack in the West’s mountains has resisted the impacts of global warming. But that could soon change, according to a new study out of Oregon State University. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found that although climate change should have caused a steep decrease in snowpack, naturally occurring, decades-long weather variations shielded the Cascades, Sierras and Rockies from some of the effects. Although snow stations have recorded some decline, it hasn’t been statistically significant. But according to the study, without this natural weather variation, snowpack in Oregon could have declined

Barr, testifying at a Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing on Tuesday, said he talked to Trump about joining the president’s defense team last summer. “He said, ‘Oh you know Bob Mueller, how well do you know Bob Mueller?´” Barr told the panel. He replied that the Barrs and the Muellers were good friends and would remain so even after the investigation was completed. “And he was interested in that, wanted to know
